Anyhoo. Mel, unlike Piggy, has been busy with the sticks and string.
That row counter is set to "1" in honour of Melly's first FO, which she cast off today: the purple Obama scarf:
It's a beauty, no? It was originally intended as a gift for a wee one, but I think Mel should keep her first project.
So this afternoon, Mel and I went shopping for her second project, the Noro Striped Scarf (or, as it's known chez Piggy, the Noro Whoro Scarf).
Our first stop did not have a great supply of Silk Garden in stock. The very helpful LYS worker placed a call was made to the shop's other, larger location, but I figured Mel needed to actually see the skeins in front of her, so we decided to try another LYS.
Where Mel picked out these:
Two lovely colourways of Silk Garden Lite. That's right, Silk Garden Lite. Mel's already acting like a real knitter by messing around with the pattern and putting her own stamp on the Noro Whoro Scarf.
